Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Collectors Edition goodies

finalfantasyxivcollI hope you’re paying attention, Final Fantasy fans, as Square Enix has a bumper of a news update just for you. Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn and the Collector’s Edition of the same game are now available for pre-order in both Australia and New Zealand.

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is scheduled for release on the 27th August 2013, for the PS3 and Windows PC, with monthly subscriptions for the game starting at $19.95. A release date announcement isn’t complete without a pre-order incentive list, however, and for fans who pre-order the standard or the Collector’s Edition of the game, the following exclusive in-game content will be available to them:

  • Early Access: Access the game servers ahead of the official launch. Get your head start and make your mark in the realm of Eorzea!
  •   Cait Sith Doll Minion: On sabbatical from Shinra Inc. and looking for adventure, Cait Sith will join your party as a non-combat pet.
  • Mog Cap: Show your love of Final Fantasy and strut around the world of Eorzea in this Moogle themed hat. Kupo

As a non-final fantasy player, they lost me at Mog Cap – however, for Australian and New Zealand fans, the ANZ Limited Edition of the game includes the Helm of Light in game item, which will apparently allow you to become one of the fabled warriors of light.

But for the die-hard fans, can you really pick up anything less than the Collector’s Edition? You cetainly cannot! And if you absolutely must have the Collector’s Edition of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, this is what it will include:

  • Collector’s box designed by Yoshitaka Amano, legendary Final Fantasy artist
  •   80-page “Art of Eorzea” hardcover art book featuring never-before-seen concept art
  •   “The Waning of the Sixth Sun,” a special bonus video disc that takes a cinematic look at the events that led up to the realm being reborn
  •   “Sounds of Eorzea” album that features musical scores by renowned Final Fantasy series composers
  •   Five collectable character art cards
  •   A Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn-branded security token to secure user accounts
  •   In-game bonus items: Helm of Light, Baby Behemoth Minion, Coeurl Mount and Behemoth Barding

And remember – Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is a standalone title and you will not need to own the original Final Fantasy XIV in order to play A Ream Reborn. But for those of you who do own Final Fantasy XIV, you will be able to download the Windows PC version of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn for free. Neato, right?!
